What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a manual gentle treatment (spinal adjustment/manipulation) of neuro-musculature disorders: Back pain, sciatica, arm and leg strains. Chiropractic focuses on the relationship between the structure and function of your body and how that relationship affects your health.
What happens during a Chiropractic treatment?
Starting with a thorough evaluation, you will be evaluated using time-honoured methods, including consultation, case history, physical examination. If necessary referral for laboratory analysis and X-ray examination. In addition, you will receive a careful chiropractic structural examination, with particular attention paid to the spine. It involves no drugs or surgery. A broad range of techniques are used to locate, analyse and gently correct vertebral misalignments/subluxations (facet joint strains) in the spine. Chiropractors primarily use manual adjustment which is a gentle form of spinal manipulation; in addition Trigger Point Therapy which is a type of deep tissue massage directed at reducing painful muscle spasms. But they never use pharmaceutical drugs or invasive surgery. The first session is an hour and follow ups are thirty minutes.
